You can still get San Andreas with an Android product. If it isn't compatible click purchase anyway and it'll work

Ok, so guessing the amazon coins are non transferable as well right? Would give them to a friend since I won't be using them.


Per Amazons coins policy.


"2.3 Gifting Coins. We may allow you to give Purchased Coins as gifts to other customers. To gift Coins, you must designate the Coins as a gift prior to purchase. You may not gift Purchased Coins that have already been applied to your account or Promotional Coins. If you purchase Coins as a gift and you specify a future date for delivery of the Coins, we will charge your account at the time of purchase but you can obtain a full refund if you cancel the order prior to the scheduled delivery date."

thanks! To everyone without a Kindle. On your Android cell or tablet just go to amazon's site and scroll to the very bottom. Select the view full website option. Than search for san Andres and it will allow you to purchase it even if your not compatible. Even thou the game won't work you'll still get the 2000 coins.

The only way to give someone else coins is to mark them as a gift prior to purchase.

To answer your question, no, you can't.

Yes you can. If you have previously installed it from the Google Play store, just uninstall that one first and then download/install the Amazon Appstore version.

Thought so from the wording there, crap. Free $20 I'll never use going to waste.

Got it! Used the coins to buy GTA Vice City. Wonder if San Andreas will work on my Nexus 1ST Gen?

Edit: Had to log in through the actual website to get San Andreas to show up.

Thanks, OP.

 

This should also be "Whatever Amazon Apps you want for free".  Seriously, I just got GTA:SA. GTA:VC. and Minecraft and still have 1300 points.

That's what I was thinking. I'm going to search for other useful apps to buy. Office Suite Pro is good. I got it for free during their app of the day promotion. I think it's $7 or so.

Thanks so much OP!

Anyone have any recommendations for games to get with my coins?

Just to be clear (possibly again didn't read the first page) it's not that it's not compatible with certain devices, it's that Amazon will only SEND IT to Kindles.  I emailed them and complained since nowhere does it say it's the Kindle version and since we also have a Kindle it looked like it was compatible (bought it on through a PC not through the appstore).  In fact when I saw as I purchased something didn't look quite right I assumed I was just reading it wrong since I KNOW it's compatible with my device.

 

Anyway they said that they're working to resolve the issue (I don't believe it's an "issue" however, it's just them trying to control their market) and they expect it to be resolved shortly.  Again, take that with a grain of salt...

Just thought I'd point out that it looks like the amazon Plex app is the same as the android one. That would be 500 coins and you get 150 back instead of paying $5 on google play.

Couldn't you in theory, unregister your kindle and register it on your friends amazon account and get them the points if they didn't have a device.

 

1. If it works

2. If your willing to go through all the trouble for that.

Not gaming related so it doesn't deserve it's own thread but if you're prime and have a Kindle Fire (assuming it's Fires only) check the special offers.  There's a promotion, might be new, but there's a promotion to get one of four upcoming releases for free.  They then emailed me a $3 promotional credit for Kindle books on top of that.

I meant to mention last night that the coins can be used for in app purchases on app downloaded through Amazon.

Contact CS, you paid for that.

You can buy any app from a PC, even a Kindle only one, whether you own a device or not.

In case nobody knows this already, you can go to go to "Your Apps and Devices" at top and remove these photo apps and redownload for as many times as you want for unlimited coins.

 

Sounds like a good way to get banned from Amazon to me.

Possibly. Seems they just fixed it anyway.

When using a amazon account with no device attached, i don't get a purchase button. Only a download the amazon appstore.
